9:03 pm
bring oldq%ñ but certainly not a new spap either. the vehicles were sitting still in the wate water. partially submerged and partly above the water line. and there you see a good example of what we are talking about. driver of this car presumably not submerged in the water because at the driver igher no water buter said again the car took quite a tumble as the brim collapsed. we don't know how many people have been hurt. but no doubt some have and we do not know whether anyone has been killed but certainly very good possibility. washington state has given the state of washington was given a c in the american society of civil engineers 2013 infrastructure report card and c minus when it came to the state's bridges. the group said that more than a quarter of washington 7840 bridges are considered structural deficient or function nationally obsolete. do not know if this bridge was

9:05 pm
>> well, dan, rather unusual. certainly the sacramento regis not immune to earth quick norq is the valley but obviously they don't have them that often here and the last major one that was felt was probably loma and at quarter to 9 the house started shifting a little bit. it was not a large earthquake. nothing fell. nothing creek. nothing cracked. but for about 5 to 10 seconds the house was shifting gently back and forth and couple of lamb shade rocking gently and before then it was over and of course when we are in the valley everybody wonders is it coast side or lick tahoe. >> well how long did it last johnnx!t>reporter: oh, probablo 10 seconds. it was very, very shovrment the moment where certainly in the bay area everybody knows there's that split second where it takes that second to realize what's going on and then you wonder
9:06 pm
what is coming next but very, very gentle. sacramento 115 miles as the crow flies from presumed epi-center at this point so probably about 150 mile drive, 115 mile as the crow flies. and that is in this area here >> thanks very much. john alston describing what he felt in the sacramento area. on the phone with us is rafael brier a seismologist with the u.s. ga. rafael are you there. >> yes, i am good evening. >> thanks so much for coming on. i understand it's down grided 9 from the 5.9:00 to 5:00.7; is that correct? >> thavrjt basically we get the location from our colleague over in northern california and located in menlo park. bay area. and the initial magnitude of 5.9 was that went out in the ballpark of the actual magnitude of the quake. seismologist i'm in the area
9:07 pm
went in checked the monitor and checked the equipment and basically recalculated the lowest magnitude and reviewed and downgradeed to 5.situation. rafael i know you are coming to us from colorado and i appreciate you coming on to talk with us tonight. this size earthquake is not significant but certainly enough to get your attention and it is enough to cause some daniel; is that correct? >> it is. we are lacking at a quake that is pretty much, give me a second, very shall o. actually. i don't think the guy in menlo -- menlo park have given a full depth. it's most difficult parameter to compute and right now they have it very, very shallow on depth of 30 kilometer. so technically speakerol to the surface. definitely the type of earthquake that people are going to feel, okay. it's definitely also the type of earthquake that could generate
9:08 pm
light to moderate damage depending where you are at. the area that the area, pretty much out of date in building codes, yes, we are looking at very minor damage. >> okay. this is do you know what fault line this earthquake might have happened on? >> this particular the point it's really, really early to tell which fault line it is. okay. i don't really have a display that is telling me water in the california area. that is definitely a question for men lo park colleague. >> we'll talk to them as well. i appreciate you come on. should we expect significant number of after shock after this. >>reporter: shallow earthquake definitely do general writ after shock. but they should be affected absolutely. >> okay rafael thank you very much. seismologist with the usgs on the telephone. you are very good to come on appreciate it. >> no problem. >> to sum up a 5.7 earthquake intercarson city tonight. 6
9:09 pm
